recording of Eyebright by Susan Coolidge.
Read in English by Lynne Thompson
"Imagination is like a sail, as Mr. Joyce had said that evening; but sails are good and useful things sometimes, and carry their owners over deep waters and dark waves, which else might dampen, and drench, and drown." Twelve year old Isabella Bright is endowed with just such an imagination and spends her time amusing herself and her friends with stories. Will her imagination be called upon to help her navigate tempestuous seas? - Summary by Lynne Thompson

Just wanted to thank Lynne Thompson
I've just started listening to Eyebright but wanted to get in the fact that You, Lynne Thompson are one of my favorite readers. You did wonderful reading in your sections of Clara Vaughan, Vol I.,Richard Doddridge BLACKMORE (1825 - 1900). I loved the young character Clara Vaughn. You did such a remarkable reading of Clara's witty and derogatory remarks to the exploitative, nefarious and fatuous people around her that deserved her humorous acerbic retorts. and her unconditional love for her parents, and others along the way who helped her and her mother after her father was murdered, who so loved clara the child and tolerated her precocious, headstrong nature.
